THE QUEEN (1968): New Trailer For 4K Restored Documentary About 1967 Drag Queen Contest

24 year old Jack, a.k.a Sabrina is hired as the mistress of ceremonies at a national drag queen contest in New York City. Set in 1967 and directed by Frank Simon, The Queen is an about to be re-released documentary that goes behind the scenes of said contest.

As is the case in many competitions, there are jealousies that emerge – and The Queen captures this and other real conversations in the dressing room. Conversations about topics including sexual identity, sex-change operations and what it’s like to be a drag queen at the time…

Considering all the conversation about gender identity in recent years, I want to watch this to see what new things I can learn about the human experience. I’m sure it’ll be interesting to think about how much things have really changed over the last fifty-plus years.

On a side note, I’ve actually been thinking about the idea of wearing a crown on a daily basis. Or at least just once a week… They are just such beautiful accessories; no one can deny that, right?

The Queen Re-release Dates: June 28th, 2019 (US)…
